A woman from Kaushambi in Uttar Pradesh Kaushambi has claimed that her husband gave instant talaq to her over the phone in an intoxicated state, reports ANI. She then approached the police seeking justice. Rosy Begum has been married to Shohrab for seventeen years and has three children with him. She told the police that Shohrab was an alcoholic and forced her to do "illegetimate" jobs to pay for his addiction.
Considering the future of my children, I did not retaliate and kept on being tortured. But two months ago, he escaped with the kids to an unknown place. I even approached the police but my application was not entertained. Then I contacted the police to rescue my kids suspecting that my husband has taken them away, but nothing has been done till date.Rosy Begum
